Abstract: In this paper we prove the Harnack inequality for nonnegative solutions of the linearized parabolic Monge-Ampère equation

on parabolic sections associated with , under the assumption that the Monge-Ampère measure generated by satisfies the doubling condition on sections and the uniform continuity condition with respect to Lebesgue measure. The theory established is invariant under the group , where denotes the group of all invertible affine transformations on .
